Four well appointed suites located in the city of La Fortuna. Each suite comfortably fits two, & features custom designed furniture in the living space, luxury bedding in the bedroom, & a kitchenette (sink, fridge, & microwave, no cook top).

The space

La Fortuna Suites is located just off the main streets of downtown La Fortuna, Costa Rica. A small town bustling with fun, and said to be the adventure capital of the world!

At La Fortuna Suites you’ll find the most comfortable Memory Foam beds in Costa Rica, 400 thread count Egyptian Cotton linens, custom designed furniture, stylish accommodations, 40' T.Vs, Netflix, WiFI, your own kitchenette, and a friendly concierge. We also serve a complimentary breakfast each morning. We have four fashionable apartments, each with a maximum occupancy of two adults. Each suite includes a queen sized bed in the bedroom, a futon in the living space, and a kitchenette.

If you've ever visited Costa RIca before, then you'll really appreciate how stylish and comfortable La Fortuna Suites is.

We like to provide our guest with the very best we have to offer. There are lots of great budget conscience places to stay in La Fortuna, but most of the more comfortable hotels are far away from town. We bridge the gap. La Fortuna Suites is for the traveler that likes to be in the middle of it all, and appreciates a little luxury. We're just steps away from the city. & minutes away from all the fun that the Arenal/ La Fortuna area has to offer: rafting, horseback riding, hiking, hot springs, zip-lining, etc.

If you're coming to La Fortuna this year, stay at La Fortuna Suites... You'll be glad you did.

Ian's place is very close to town with a great view of the volcano from the deck ( when the clouds clear). We found it very clean and spacious with a VERY comfy bed. It had a microwave, dishes & utensils. Ian was very accommodating and serves a good breakfast.

The location of La Fortuna Suites can't be beat! It is within walking distance to all the restaurants/shops you would need. Ian has great recommendations for things to do or can help you schedule activities (zip-lining & waterfall repelling were awesome) and can get you a discount at most places! Amanda's yoga class was perfect on the deck. And breakfast every morning was great! Thanks Ian and Amanda!

Ian's place was perfect for us. Although we only stayed a night, I will say the mattress was so unbelievably comfortable and the breakfast was delicious. We got a flat tire and Ian was kind enough to call our rental car company for us to get more information on how to proceed. Ian is hilarious, warm and kind. Thank you for being such a great host!

Ian's place was clean, secure, an easy distance from everything, not to mention beautiful! He was an excellent host and was able to arrange some very last minute request excursions for us. Hoping to make it back here soon!

Comfortable beds and convenient location! Breakfast was delicious the beautiful deck and Ian was kind enough to deliver breakfast the evening before our flight since we were leaving early the following morning to get to the airport. Ian gives great recommendations for local activities and was very responsive to messages. Thanks for a great stay!

This is the best place to stay in La Fortuna. Ian was more than a host. He was a travel guide, tour booking operator, concierge, chef (amazing natural breakfast), and friend in another country. Though you can book this in several websites, I recommend you just call the place directly and speak to Ian. He and his family have true roots in hospitality. Every morning we woke up to an amazing breakfast and every question we had he answered. He went above and beyond to make sure we had great prices and an honest review on anything we wanted to do. For price and value, this place outdid itself. La Fortuna Suites has a certain kind of warmth and attention to its guests that you will never get from a chain hotel. If you want the frigid attention (and price) of a luxury hotel, then stay somewhere else, but if you want the warmth, care and attention that's similar to staying with relatives or a grandma that gives you home cooked meals and real local's advice, then stay here. I will certainly stay here again whenever I come back.

La Fortuna Suites is owned and operated by the Aspinall Henry family, Costa Rican-Canadians with additional ties to California. Our history in Arenal began when my great-grandfather came to the area in the 1970’s, to initiate the project which built the large earth-fill dam across the Arenal River, to produce hydroelectric power on behalf of ICE, the government run electricity provider.

During the late 1980’s my father, John Aspinall, one of the pioneers in tourism in Costa Rica, began promoting this area and bringing tourists to experience the wonders of the active volcano, as well as the amazing beauty that abounds here.

Having recently returned to my home country, I am excited to be at La Fortuna Suites, where I can share with others my passion for nature, adventure, and the great beauty of the central valley.

We're located in the town of La Fortuna. A 2 min walk from the church in the center of town. & 5 min from the bus station. There are lots of great hostels and budget conscious places to stay in La Fortuna, but most of the nicer places are far away from town. You're stuck out there once you're at your hotel. La Fortuna Suites is for the traveler that wants access to the city, & wants to come back to a space that reminds them of home.

There are tons of things to do near by: white water rafting, zip-lining, horseback riding, hiking, rappelling, hot spring spas etc. In fact, the Arenal/ La Fortuna area is known as the "Adventure capital of the world!" After a day of adventure, relax & watch a movie on Netflix on a 40" screen. you can even make a snack in your own private kitchenette. Or, get something delivered from one of the restaurants near by. Enjoy the afternoon, taking in views of the Arenal Volcano, & having a drink on our spacious deck. At the end of the day, you'll sleep better than anyone in Costa Rica on a Memory foam mattress imported from the U.S., & 400 thread count Egyptian cotton linens. We also serve a complimentary breakfast each morning, & can book any tours you have interest in.

A little abut the building: It was an apartment building with a bad reputation in a nice part of town. We bought it, put in 8 months, & a lot of dollars in renovations. It's worlds away from what it looked like we first saw it! Check out the progression on that other site. The thing, that's not this site. (Airbnb will not allow me to type the name).
